The recovery characteristics of the low pressure sparkgaps in the time interval of 300 s to 50 ms by the influence of 1) gap spacings of 2.5 and 10 mm, 2) pulse voltages of 45 kV rising in 2.5 s for positive and negative polarities, and 3) the pressure range of 1.3–34.7 Pa, have been determined for hydrogen, argon, and deuterium gases. A two-pulse system, capable of generating two pulses rising to 45 kV each in 2.5 s and separated by a variable delay of 100 s to 50 ms, has been used to study… CONTINUE READING
